I've never heard of this site. How is it? =O


From what i know they mainly sell cheap GK


Cheap Fake GKs that have being banned from MFC for over a year now >__< .... but still i think that there PVC figures are all real . I was very tempted to get Erica Hartmann but i just don't like the idea of supporting a site like this one


I wouldn't necessarily call thier GKS cheap. Their gathering figure service are amazing, and so are their bases and presentation. I splurged on the Shunya Yamashita esque Misato and its FRIGGIN AMAZING.

All thier PVC figures are real however.


I own several of their GKs and they are not "cheap" at all. Even though they are recasts they are very professionally done and look great. Nice paint, the pieces fit together properly, nice packing. They are not like the cruddy recast figures that you find on eBay.

They're not really cheap unless you mean price-wise and that's understandable considering they're re-casts and not originals. They're not Thai casts - they're actually pretty nicely made recasts which come in handy for those who can't find certain original kits that have been discontinued years ago and are hard to find elsewhere. I've purchased plenty of kits from them and have been nothing but satisfied over the years - both painted and unpainted.

That said, all their PVC's are authentic; They're just like any other store - they sell PVCs and other items (tools, etc). They're not all 'bad'; I get a LOT of my paint supplies from them as well as other tools of the trade.

It's probably also worth mentioning that, beyond what are basically bootleg garage kits (most a recasts of legitimate garage kits), they also sell both finished and unfinished bootleg recasts of actual figures. It's easy to confuse their legitimate figures with the painted recasts but, as far as I know, you're safe as long as you remember to stick with the stuff specifically marked as "PVC".

I dont really want to get into the E2046 discussion again because i think that it has come up about 1000 time now . But my opinion has always being that recasts in just a nice way of saying that they are bootleged fakes of someone else's hard work . You can talk about their quality , price and availability all you want but at the end of the day i still feel bad knowing that 90% of there GKs are ripoffs of beautiful pieces of art that people have spent hundreds of hours creating

yeah i suggest we stop here and go back to the purpose of this thread. Talking about that store (or other stores) is pointless since everyone has their own opinion and view. Not worth the debate.

Understandable. I mostly wanted to note that it's not just a place of recast kits - I get most of my painting supplies from them at reasonable prcies. I can understand not wanting to pay for recast(s) for ethical/moral reasons but in terms of the store as a whole, there are other things provided that are actually of use (ie: paints, markers, glue, airbrush tools, etc).

To me, it's like going into a craft store, lol. They (at craft stores) have like, wood pieces you can buy to paint (bird houses, toy boxes, etc) and smaller kits (airplane models, car models, etc) which were all originally created by someone else but are for sale for people to paint and create their own varation(s) even if the base is the same. I don't hate the craft store - they carry other things like paintbrushes, easels, pastels and more that I use on a daily basis. :>

If that makes sense?

That makes sense, but I personally wouldn't want to give my money to a store whose primary business seems to be knockoffs. I would have a very hard time justifying my purchases there, especially when there are so many other reasonably priced options for figures and modeling supplies.

Anyway, moving on...

There's also a Garage kit building club (Garage kit love!!!) where you can have a hearty discussion about bootlegs and all if you're interested, this club definitely isn't the place to talk about it~ xD

I frequent E2046 regularly, and I'm on their forum as well. Speaking directly about PVC figures, they're all legitimate. That's all I'm gonna say about it, I don't want to spark any flames LOL Even so, I still think the prices on a lot of those PVC's aren't that great. -shrug-

Edit: I know this isn't really the right topic to discuss it but while we're talking about recasts and all, I see sometimes in the Sales portion of this website people are selling garage kits. Is it safe to assume most of the time they're just trying to get rid of recasts, or are they selling the original kit? It's probably better to just ask the seller I guess, but I was curious what you guys thought about it.

I want this, but after having the set #01, i now conclude that petites are way too small for me.
